Back in Black, and Funny Wigs

You’re not getting out of an AC/DC concert for less than a half a grand. Two tickets near the stage? $300. Parking? $20. T-shirts for you and your about-to-rock date? $80 to $100. Add snacks, stadium cocktails, and bribes to the people ahead of you in the bathroom line? Easily another $50 to $100. But here’s a secret: you don’t have to blow a week’s pay to get shook all night long. You just have to drink until fantasy and reality blend.

Do that tonight when Highway to Hell, Florida’s own AC/DC tribute band, takes the stage at City Limits. If on first glance the wigs look chintzy, the school boy suits forced, drink more. After half-a-dozen gin-and-tonics, you’ll just be happy that there are no beefy security guards to keep you from clambering on stage and stage-diving. (Note: Nobody’s going to catch you.) When you reckon that all this entertainment cost you just $15 per ticket, which includes a free Kindness Festival T-shirt, you’ll be even happier. And pleasantly drunk. Doors at 7 p.m., opening act Screamin Jerry Leeman at 8. Visit www.newcitylimits.com.
Sun., Aug. 26, 7 p.m.
